BE

And when great souls die,

after a period peace blooms,

slowly and always

Irregularly. Spaces fill

with a kind of electric vibration.

Our senses, restored, never

to be the same, whisper to us.

They existed. They existed.

We can be. Be and be

better. For they existed.

Maya Angelou from When Great Trees Fall
